From Geek in the Park
Geek in the Park is a day-long get together, picnic, and discussion for anyone to do with the Internet (developers, designers, programmers… whatever!). This is a very informal affair so family and friends are very much welcome to attend too.
The big day is taking place in Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. Split in to two main events, Geek in the Park starts with The Picnic during the day, followed by The Discussion in the evening. The event starts on Sunday at noon and everything should wrap up by around 11pm.
At 7pm, Geek in the Park moves to the nearby pub called the Jug and Jester, for some informative and entertaining speakers. We will also be hosting some off-the-wall competitions, with a chance to win prizes generously donated by the kind people at friends of ED.
We have the pleasure of playing host to some special guests at The Discussion:
Patrick H. Lauke is the web editor for the University of Salford and a member of the Web Standards Project Accessibility Task Force. Patrick also writes on splintered, his freelance creativity and design site.
Bruce Lawson is also a member of the Web Standards Project Accessibility Task Force, and he is co-author and technical reviewer of Web Accessibility: Web Standards and Regulatory Compliance. Bruce writes on a personal site.
Patrick and Bruce will both be discussing Where the Rubber Meets the Road: Web Accessibility and Pragmatism.
